obama's insincere gestures you know he also showed. his hand a few years ago at a summit of the americas in trinidad but then he proceeded to implement policies that were very aggressive towards venezuela so i don't think this is going to signify any kind of change or shift in u.s. policy towards cuba and yet some would say washington minutes to strike a deal with a rock for relations with cuba. well it certainly could it's just that there hasn't been any sign besides this unexpected encounter that that was on the plate of obama's government administration for the upcoming year in fact his government has tightened some of the restrictions against cuba has loosened and made flexible others but obama also took a jab in his speech i think that was directed towards castro and others when he made some kind of statement about the fact that some of the leaders there didn't respect dissidents in their own countries i think he was trying to make up for the fact that he would be heavily criticized for having. shaken castro's hand so i don't think that in any way this indicates that washin

barack obama's sophomore year of college when he helped plan a rally calling on the school to divest itself from doing business with companies in south africa. as the "chicago tribune" reported he opened in street theater speaking a couple of minutes when two white students in paramilitary dress dragged him away mid sentence. that cameo so impressed rebecca rivera, another rally participant that she wondered why he hadn't been more politically active on campus. she made a mental note at the time to get him involved. the college didn't divest but a new leader inspired by nelson mandela was reborn. as president obama later said in his memoir, i noticed people had begun to listen to my opinion. it was a discovery that made me hungry for words. the president and first lady will travel to africa next week to pay their respects. joining us from washington, among our many other guests, austin, not washington, is msnbc's very own chris matthews. chris, we have a whole panel in new york. i want to go to you first. you spoke with the president yesterday. there's a lot of talk about nelson mand
